National Political Opinion / He Needs to be Impeached
« on: December 12, 2013, 05:49:49 PM »
Looks like more Constitutional shredding is headed our way.  He sees himself above any and all laws, including murder of American citizens.  And now he has an "advisor" to help him circumvent, even further, the Congress and laws of this country.  already a felon, he now proposes to make up laws as he goes along through executive fiat.

There can be no comeback for this.  HE said it and HE is stuck with it.

Tell us your favorite Joke / Bull-Federal (perceived) Authority
« on: September 28, 2013, 01:07:30 PM »
A DEA Agent stopped at a ranch in Texas and talked to an old rancher. He told the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs." The rancher said, "okay, but don't go into that field over there...", as he pointed out the location. The DEA Agent verbally exploded and said, "look mister, I have the authority of the federal government with me!" Reaching into his rear back pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher. "See this badge?! This badge means I can go wherever I want... On any land! No questions asked, no answers given! Do you understand old man?!"

 The rancher kindly nodded, apologized, and went about his chores. Moments later the rancher heard loud screams, he looked up and saw the DEA agent running for his life, being chased by the ranchers big Santa Gertrudis Bull...... With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it was likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified. The old rancher threw down his tools, ran as fast as he could to the fence, and yelled at the top of his lungs......

National Political Opinion / Executive Action

Obama promises Executive Action regarding gun control?  He is not a king and never will be.  I can now compare him to Hitler and Stalin.

National Political Opinion / Government Home Visits
« on: September 26, 2013, 11:54:09 PM »
YOu might just want to read this.  Everyone.  obamacare is going to begin home visits.  None of them will be allowed in the door.  Yes, I am a vet.  That alone seems to be enough incentive to TRY to enter my home.

"We're from the government, etcetera, etcetera . . ."

This time the left can't say, "That's not in the bill!"

It's in the bill. Health and Human Services is making grants to states and agencies who are willing to perform "evidence-based home visits" connected to ObamaCare. What is the purpose of these visits? The grant guidelines don't exactly say, but they do spell out in detail who might receive them:

a) Eligible families who reside in communities in need of such services, as identified in the statewide needs assessment required under subsection (b)(1)(A).

b) Low-income eligible families.

c) Eligible families who are pregnant women who have not attained age 21.

d) Eligible families that have a history of child abuse or neglect or have had interactions with child welfare services.

e) Eligible families that have a history of substance abuse or need substance abuse treatment.

f) Eligible families that have users of tobacco products in the home.

g) Eligible families that are or have children with low student achievement.

h) Eligible families with children with developmental delays or disabilities.
i) Eligible families who, or that include individuals who, are serving or formerly served in the Armed Forces, including such families that have members of the Armed Forces who have had multiple deployments outside of the United States.
By "eligible families" they presumably mean eligible for premium subsidies, and that covers a whole lot of people. As for the categories offered here, it seems just about everyone would fit into at least one of them, yes?

Why do you need to get a visit from someone connected to ObamaCare because of your child's grades? Tobacco use? Not wise, but not against the law, so why do they need to come and see you about it? Interactions with child welfare services? A serious matter, but what exactly is the reason the federal government wants you to get a visit in connection with ObamaCare?

You realize what this is, right? Once the government (or "society" as liberals are fond of saying these days) is responsible for subsidizing your health care, they've got an inherent interest in your lifestyle. They've got a financial stake. If you were just paying the bills yourself, it would affect no one but you. But now that we've got a system of third-party payers mandated and subsidized by the government, it's no longer just your business if you smoke or, I guess, if your kid gets poor grades.

You will get a visit!

Many of us warned of this sort of thing during the original debates. It's bad enough that an insurance company gets to question you about this stuff, but when someone backed by the force of law can knock on your door and demand to know why you smoke . . . now do you see why Ted Cruz talked all those hours?

UPDATE: Some on the left are responding to this by a) claiming the visits are "voluntary"; and b) passing around a Snopes link that claims the story is false. The response to both A and B is the same. The Snopes piece emphasizes that the home visits are not "forced," and that is true, which technically makes it "voluntary" in the sense that you don't have to let them in. But that is misleading and beside the point.

It is not "voluntary" in the sense that you call up the government and say, "Hey, I can't quit smoking, is there someone the government can send over?" They reach out to you and seek to arrange a visit. You don't have to agree, but once the government has flagged your home as an issue worthy of a home visit, what happens after you refuse the visit? These are the people who are subsidizing your insurance, and they've just told you they need to speak with you. Yeah, sure, that's "voluntary."

It's a great example of how politicians use words to make things sound very different from what they really are.

National Political Opinion / Funding Obamacare-My Feeling and Opinion
« on: September 25, 2013, 06:20:01 PM »
Funding of the government comes from ONE source.  It must be initiated in the House of Representatives.  That is law.  So then tell me how the Senate can fund obamacare.  They cannot legally.  It must have initiated in the House.  So saying, the democrats in the Senate are attempting to shut down the government, along with the president.

Of course we all know what opinions are like.  Just my perspective on this issue.  We all know Obama is the ONLY one who knows the rule of law.  HIS law that is.  Not the Constitution or the law of the land.

Tell us your favorite Joke / For the LE people

An Arizona Highway Patrol officer stops a Harley for traveling faster than the posted speed limit, so he asks the biker his name.

 'Fred,' he replies.

 'Fred what?' the officer asks.

 'Just Fred,' the man responds.

 The officer is in a good mood, thinks he might just give the biker a break, and write him out a warning instead of a ticket. The officer then presses him for the last name.

 The man tells him that he used to have a last name but lost it.

 The officer thinks that he has a nut case on his hands but plays along with it. 'Tell me, Fred, how did you lose your last name?'

 The biker replies, 'It's a long story, so stay with me.' I was born Fred Johnson. I studied hard and got good grades. When I got older, I realized that I wanted to be a doctor. I went through college, medical school, internship, residency, and finally got my degree, so I was Fred Johnson, MD. After a while I got bored being a doctor, so I decided to go back to school. Dentistry was my dream! Got all the way through School, got my degree, so then I was Fred Johnson, MD, DDS. Got bored doing dentistry, so I started fooling around with my assistant and she gave me VD, so now I was Fred Johnson, MD, DDS, with VD.

 Well, the ADA found out about the VD, so they took away my DDS. Then I was Fred Johnson, MD, with VD. Then the AMA found out about the ADA taking away my DDS because of the VD, so they took away my MD leaving me as Fred Johnson with VD. Then the VD took away my Johnson, so now I am Just Fred.'

 The officer walked away in tears, laughing.

National Political Opinion / The Latest SPIN on obamacare
« on: September 24, 2013, 08:24:27 PM »
What kind of nonsense is this?  Without income, how can we pursue other things?  To spin this as she and Obama have is just insanity.  Of course there are not jobs to be had in many places.

UN_American and Anti American too:  Claire McCaskill

Recently we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Constitutional gun rights over to the United Nations. In a 53-46 vote, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms, and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo. Astonishingly, 46 of our United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power. Here are the 46 senators that voted to give your rights to the U.N.

 Baldwin (D-WI)
 Baucus (D-MT)
 Bennet (D-CO)
 Blumenthal (D-CT)
 Boxer (D-CA)

 Cardin (D-MD)
 Carper (D-DE)
 Casey (D-PA)
 Coons (D-DE)
 Cowan (D-MA)
 Durbin (D-IL)
 Feinstein (D-CA)
 Franken (D-MN)
 Gillibrand (D-NY)
 Harkin (D-IA)
 Hirono (D-HI)

 This needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take our guns. They need to lose the next election. We have been betrayed. 46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.

 President Barack Obama is determined to turn over the guns of American citizens to the United Nations and their minions. But we must ACT right this moment to send a clear-cut message to our Congress—to NOT sign this socialistic treaty!

 President Barack Obama is using emotions and lies to take advantage of FAMILIES AND CHILDERN of horrific and violent events of mentally disturbed people to SELL America that they must forfeit their guns to be safe. Taking away rights and guns from law-abiding citizens will not stop criminals and terrorists from using them!

 He has exploited tragedy after tragedy to bring his anti-gun agenda to the very forefront of American dialogue.

 Many United States Senators have already let their voice be known that they do NOT support this forced gun-grab! However, we must be sure that the majority of senators are in agreement.


 Tell Congress that they must keep the United Nations treaty from our guns! Urge Congress NOT to ratify the UN “Arms Trade Treaty”!

Demand IT! It is a United States Constitutional right to own a gun according to the Second Amendment! Only days remain to the self-imposed deadline that President Obama gave to himself.

National News / Cop in Jail after killing unarmed victim
« on: September 16, 2013, 12:48:36 PM »
And on paid leave pending investigation.  IN the real world, any of us would lose our jobs and rot there.  This was flat out murder.  The others should also be charged as they were also complicit as far as I am concerned.  That IS the law.  If in the commission of a felony, all perps are charged for the crime.  Except those above the law of course.

I know the majority of LE are good folks.  I also know the bad apples need to be thrown out.  Yet it rarely happens.  Witness the cops in NYC who shot at an unarmed man and hit two bystanders.  I am sure no charges will be pending there.
